    Cats & poinsettias have peacefully coexisted in multiple households in my family for 40 years that I know of.

    It's nice to ride again I have to admit. But doing a glorified plod on a schoolie in no way compares to the adrenaline rush from driving my crazy mare late in the summer. She just marched down the...

    On mats, I like a lot of bedding. I boarded at a barn that did the skimpy 2-4", with none where the horse ate, and I was constantly battling hock sores. The mare liked to nap lying down. She tore...

    At 5'3", you'd easily fit 15.2 or less. A horse that size would have all the buttons in the right place for you.

    Depends on how they're built. I've used the same harness on a chunky 13.2 pony, a 15.2 mare & a 17.2 mare. They've all been hooked to the same buggy, but it was not a show turn out by any means.

    I'll raise you 7 non-paying boarders who apparently think they are free-leasing their horses.
